New Delhi :  

Leanne Morrison, a young mother, took her own life on her 23rd birthday after being abused by online trolls. Online trollers have forced her to commit suicide. One troller has created a fake Tinder account in her name.

Despite appearing enthusiastic and cheerful with friends, she believed to have killed herself when she returned to her home in nearby Camburbarrson, leaves behind four-year-old son Mason. The family was completely stunned after losing her.

Grandmother Isabel Morrison told the Daily Record: “I spoke to her the night before her birthday when she came to get her cards and she was in good form and looking forward to her night out.

“She told me she had an appointment to see the doctor and I think she had been suffering from depression after having a few rough times recently – but no one realised how bad it was."

“We are all utterly devastated. Leanne knew so many people and had so many great friends. She was the life and soul of the party and loved a night out but she lived for her wee boy and Mason is our main concern.”

According to Isabel, she know nothing about the bullying until after Leanne's death. The body of the Leanne was identified by her brother William and uncle Donnie Morrison. Friends and relatives through the social media expressed how Leanne had suffered from depression following a broken relationship.

Leanne also reported the online bullying case to police. According to the family members, because of the online trolling, she committed suicide.

“Some sicko created a fake Tinder account and was contacting guys with it. Police have been given a name for the person who is suspected and everyone who knows Leanne is hoping they get properly punished for it.

Two days before her death, she has posted an optimistic message on Facebook. “We all mess up sometimes. Don’t forget all the good someone has done just because they’ve made mistakes.

“Everyone is learning, living and growing. Always let the good outweigh the bad. Love, laugh and live. Day one or one day, it’s your choice so make it worth it.”

“Leanne would always tell people she was doing OK but it was known that some of the setbacks she’s had in the last few years have led to depression and she has struggled to cope.”

In August, statistics from the National Records of Scotland showed a surge in the number of people who died by suicide in 2016.
